Recommended: God’s Philosophers by James Hannam
Recently I have read the book ‘God’s Philosophers: How the Medieval
World Laid the Foundations of Modern Science’ by James Hannam. I found it a
very enjoyable read, with a very timely message. Hannam tells stories about
(natural) philosophers in the middle ages, and how the work they did prepares
for the work of later scientists like Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Newton.
For me, it was fascinating to learn how natural philosophy
changed over time, through the lives of these thinkers that I had never heard
off. Learning about them has really broadened my academic horizons. I wish you
the same experience.
